    Hi, I'm looking to begin studying Law (LLB) in September but can't decide between University of Exeter and University of Reading. I have offers from both for AAB but not sure which is a better choice. I've been to open days but was wondering if anyone could offer any extra advice or information?
    Thanks

    I don't think there is any real difference in terms of prestige, go to whichever university you like best/has the best course. Look in detail at the modules available and think about what location offers the best job and internship opportunities.

    You don't? Alright then.

    This is rather straight-forward, Exeter.

    Not an outstanding reputation but it is an RG and has a strong-ish if not slightly stronger reputation than Reading.

    Aye, that's alright. No doubt you know a lot about the law scene.

    Evidently more than you if you think an employer is going to care whether an applicant studied at Exeter or Reading.

    Edit: I just realised you're an Exeter law student, so obviously you think Exeter is better than everywhere else - not going to argue this point with you.

    You start out by saying 1) the unis are equal in terms of prestige to 2) employers don't care about the prestige. That's two separate propositions you're going to have a hard time reconciling.

    I didn't say that at all. But as I say, I'm not going to debate this with you. Good night.

    It has nothing to do with whether or not I study at Exeter. Exeter is weaker than a whole range of universities, generally and specifically for law -- I am not emotionally invested. I'd challenge you if you were to say a similar thing about York or Warwick and my post history proves that.

    You posted something clearly wrong. If you don't want to be challenged, don't make these types of posts. And if you are challenged, be intellectually honest. Avoid conflating two distinct propositions and dismissing people as "biased" when you don't have a clue about their background.

    That said, enjoy your beauty sleep.
